Written Directions

This section of 125 heads east from US 68 just south of Georgetown. Start in Portsmouth, and head west on route 25 through West Union and Russellvile.


The western end begins with rolling hills and farmland with regular dips into and out of small river valleys. East of West Union the hills become steeper and tree lined, with some great distance views from the top of the ridges. At the far east end is Shawnee state park, and a nice ride along a stream thru unspoiled woodland.

Road Quality

Sweepers galore. Good asphalt the entire length. The assent east of Blue Creek has a couple of decreasing radius curves that can surprise you if aren't carefull.

Roadside Amenities

There are numerous gas / snack stops along this route. Wendy's, Big Boy, McDonalds, etc... are available 1 mile south from West Union. Camping, Cabins and a lodge with a restuarant are all available at Shawnee State Park.

This is great scenic ride, it has a bit of everything. Has straight areas, curves and hills, a beautiful park to stop at and walk a bit. The road is in good shape, a few small pot holes but overall in good shape. Would recommend to anyone.

Road west from Shawnee. Section through the forrest is very nice with good pavement and gentle sweepers often in the shade through the woods. Once out of woods it is just Ohio farm land, but better riding than alternative routes. Nice 2-up tour.

03/26/2016, clear spring day. Excellent road conditions. Nice drive if you need to get somewhere and this is on your way. Fast traffic, but you will slow down for the few hills and curves.
